I'm honestly starting to worry and think I should cancel and get the 3700x.I don't need any buyers' reviews on Newegg or any other store. Even die hard Intel fan boys like Linus (Linus Tech Tips) are pretty confident the 3900X is the desktop king. You can spend more on a 9900K to get a small, inappreciable, benefit in some games, but the 3900X just destroys it in almost any real-world productivity or content creation app. And those it doesn't it just beats it a bunch.
Some of the reviewers are even coming right out and declaring they can find very little reason to recommend buying Intel... Ry3k is simply superior at every price point. And Linus even wonders about when Intel drops 10nm (Ice Lake?) what AMD will do next since they've got 3950X...then Ry4k and Ry5k in the works. It's good for PC consumers, there's competition, at last.
Look at this: https://www.tomsguide.com/news/amd-ryzen-9-3900x-and-ryzen-7-3700x-benchmarks-why-amd-beats-intel
Notice the title makes it sound like amd just blew intel away, but look at the benchmarks... It doesn't do much better than the intels in ANYTHING, even their productivity tests, which is basically excel and office. The 3900x costs 50% more than the 3700x and has 50% more cores. to be worth it, it should do close to 50% better than the 3700x in SOMETHING. If it's only going to be less than 10% better, even in productivity, it's not worth it.
On the plus side, it shows the amds are right there with the intels in web browsing... so I definitely will go with amd, but I am deciding between the 3700x and 3900x now. Notice the 3700x even does BETTER in web browsing than the 3900x. It would save $170, cut power usage practically in half, etc... The only way the 3900x is worth it is if it vastly outdoes the 3700x in SOME applications, but it sure didn't in any at that link.
